Designed to withstand all the stresses applied by the human hand, the F1x is virtually indestructible. It assumes, however, that you are careful with the knife and that it is used  as intended, namely as a sharp precision tool.

The basis of the X-knife’s strength lies in the laminated cobalt steel, and also in the well-thought-out construction in which break zones have been eliminated. Together with the hand-shaped convex edge, the X-knife is a concept that beats everything else in the world in terms of safety and comfort.

A few words about the coating: This surface treatment is the hardest we have ever encountered. Although we really tried to wear down the coating with the toughest, driest curly birch we could find, we never succeeded in getting holes in this extremely hard, durable surface. Still, we cannot guarantee that it will stay eternity, after all, the blade can be sharpened on a diamond or ceramic stone on the surface. But you have probably never met a harder surface, the hardness is at 2400 HV (Vickers) or around HRC 83.

In our usual way, we have put a lot of energy into designing a safe knife sheath, which is actually where the knife will spend most of its time. The design of the sheath determines the access to the knife, and here we have really put all our efforts in order to get a safe sheath that allows easy access to the knife. The sheath has both a transport lock (the folding bracket with a strap) and a working safety detail that allows the knife to be in place until you decide to use it. It is a bit a belt-and-braces approach, but we like putting safety first – a lost knife is of no use. The transport lock will therefore allow the knife to be fastened tip-up or tip-down on the body or on your equipment without any risk.

As an accessory, the knife sheath is available with a stainless clip that allows you to easily carry the knife on your waist belt. The advantages are several – including that you can easily remove and stow your knife. When belt-mounted, the knife will hang vertically, a few centimeters lower than the belt, allowing it to be accessed even if wearing a backpack or long jacket. The articulation in this sheath system allows the wearer to move the knife and sheath to one side when seated or driving a vehicle.

Overall: We won’t be surprised if people starts recognizing the X-knife as the world’s most thoroughly thought-out knife concept where no corner has been cut, nothing spared, to bring out the very best from an ergonomic and safety point of view. The knife is sharp and strong, the sheath is smart and safe. So, what more can you ask for? Well, we’ve created the knife to be really good looking too!
